This is shameless promotion!
I have been knitting since I was 8 years old (thanks Mom!), and would love to pass on the skills of one of my favorite activities. If you want to learn how to knit, I offer lessons at $10 a session (which usually lasts 30 min to an hour). Depending on how fast you learn, it may take up to 3 to 4 sessions to cover the basics (cast on, knit, purl, and bind off). For intermediate level knitters, I even have lessons I've developed for lace, felting, etc. I would be willing to swap too - like books or food, etc.
Group classes may be fun too if you have a group of friends who want to learn to knit... I'm doing such a class in two weeks with a classmate of mine and her friends. Throw in a little dinner and it's a knitting party (like a tupperware party but cooler). Let me know.
P.S. I live in Decatur, GA, and would be willing to travel within the metro Atlanta area to meet firstname.lastname@example.org
